Curaduría: Claudinei Roberto da Silva

Curada por Claudinei Roberto da Silva, la muestra presenta una selección de arte contemporáneo afrobrasileño, específicamente producido en el Estado de São Paulo, con obras de artistas establecidos y emergentes, desafiantes en lo que respecta a sus vocaciones ante las adversidades que trascienden el universo del arte. Estas obras, de carácter multifacético, permiten indagar sobre la identidad, la memoria, las políticas del cuerpo, el género y los enunciados políticos, teniendo en cuenta la complejidad contemplada desde la perspectiva del lugar de los artistas.

A través de una producción que comparte profundidad poética y fuerza estética, combinada en audaces y delicados arreglos conceptuales, la exposición reúne obras de Aline Motta, André Ricardo, Betto Souza, Eneida Sanches, Janaina Barros, Juliana dos Santos, Laércio, Lídia Lisboa, Luiz 83, Marcelo D'Salete, Marcio Mariano, No Martins, Peter de Brito, Santidio Pereira, Sidney Amaral, Rosana Paulino, Wagner Celestino y Washington Silveira. La selección de artistas construye un panorama de la producción artística afrobrasileña actual, destacando la calidad de la investigación formal y conceptual, a veces llevada a cabo en condiciones de producción adversas, pero no menos políticas o con necesidad de mejores soluciones.

The collective exhibit has been attended by more than 35 thousand visitors and is currently in it's fourth iteration in the State of São Paulo, having been previously showcased at Sesc São Carlos, at Sesc Ribeirão Preto and at Sesc Vila Mariana, in the State Capital, São Paulo. The artworks put together for Sesc Santos' exhibit include pieces by three new artists, and sum up to about 160 pieces of 18 artists, which together delineate a possibility of a contemporary Afro-Brazilian art overview.

"If Afro-Brazilian art constitutes today an undeniable reality, this is due to the obstinate work and tenacious attitude of a whole community of artists, researchers, curators, institutions, museums, galleries and, of course, collectors, but else, and no less important, it is equally due to the struggle of a community of citizens and militants, Afro-descendants or not, committed to generating a cultural scenario which mirrors [an ideal yet to be reached] a pluralistic and democratic society", points out the curator Claudinei Roberto.

According to the curator, this is an affirmative art exhibit. "Afro-Brazilian art", Claudinei says, "arises affirming values, safeguarding memories, revealing and rescuing identities and ancestralities. It proposes a conception of Brazil's art history which, if decolonized, shall be polycentric and, therefore, inclusive. It engages in the prospection and adoption of new paradigms and vocabularies, not only aesthetic ones but also of an ethic character, that questions the doctrines until now consecrated by a elitist, Eurocentric, classist, macho and therefore misogynistic discourse; also racist, heteronormative and, therefore, exclusivist".

The exhibition was originally conceived for Sesc Ribeirão Preto in early 2018, and since then has been around other Sesc's centers in the State of São Paulo, due to its precise and precious framing. Being aware of its role as an enabling agent and validator of artistic manifestations in its multiplicity, Sesc seeks to contribute with the ongoing process of ensuring visibility and affirming Afro-Brazilian art production's reach, in a Country that still conceals the debts engendered by the enslaving of the black populations.
